I was born in Pretoria the Jacaranda City and completed my 4 year Nursing Diploma with the Military (South African Medical Service College for Nursing Training). They sent me to Langebaanweg Air force base in the West Coast where I worked for a few years but my passion for pregnant woman took me back to Pretoria. There I worked in a private hospital in the Labour ward and started my private practice.

In 2006 I took up the books again and did my diploma in Advanced Midwifery and Neonatology with the University of Johannesburg. In 2008 the wind blew me back to the West Coast and now I am working at the Life West Coast Private Hospital in the Labour ward. My private practice, “From Tummy to Mummy”, renders a professional service in the West Coast. The services includes: antenatal classes, postnatal support groups, breastfeeding consultations and a Well Baby Clinic. My passion in life is to educate 'parents to be' to make an informed decision with their birth plan. The result: a birthing experience that will be the most wonderful experience in their life.
